At Above All Equipment Sales, we sell new and reconditioned scissor lifts, boom lifts, and telehandlers. One of our most popular telehandlers is the Genie 5519 for a few reasons.

Why is the Genie 5519 so Popular?

The Genie 5519 has been in production for about 15 or so years now, which means that there are plenty of new and used machines on the market. At Above All Equipment, we sell both new and reconditioned Genie 5519’s.

Most customers go with the reconditioned telehandlers because it is essentially a new machine for a fraction of the cost.

The biggest benefit to the Genie 5519 is that it is extremely lightweight. It weighs less than 10,000 pounds. Because of its lightweight design, the Genie 5519 can be towed by a large pickup truck. That makes this machine super easy to move from job site to job site without having to invest in a more heavy-duty transportation truck.

What is the Lift and Weight Capacity for the Genie 5519?

The most weight that this telehandler can lift is up to 5,500 pounds, which is still a lot for such a lightweight machine. It can also reach heights up to 19 feet in the air. This is how Genie names all of their telehandlers, “Genie weight/height capacity” therefore, you have the Genie 5519.

At Above All Equipment Sales, we sell new and reconditioned scissor lifts, boom lifts, and telehandlers from many popular brands. One of our most popular items are our scissor lifts. When it comes to purchasing your scissor lift, it is important to keep in mind the maintenance requires for your machine.

Scissor Lift Maintenance

Keeping up with your scissor lift is overall very simple. You definitely want to read the owner’s manual so you can understand everything your individual scissor lift’s needs. But in general, these are a few key points in scissor lift maintenance:

Scissor Lift Batteries

Batteries are a key component of any scissor lift. They are not maintenance free; however, the upkeep is extremely easy. Make sure to add distilled water every two to four weeks. Again, make sure to check the manual as this maintenance doesn’t really vary by manufacturer, but it does vary by geographical location. For example, if you are working in a desert-like climate, then you’ll need to add water more often.

Replacing Your Scissor Lift Battery

Plan on getting a new battery every three years, but keep an eye on it as its life can vary depending on how much you use the lift. The batteries are four golf cart batteries, so six-volt batteries that you can buy anywhere, such as Costco.

Annual ANSI Safety Inspection for Scissor Lifts

Just like your car, you will have to get new tags for your scissor lift every year. The only difference is that the scissor lift must undergo the ANSI safety inspection and pass before you can get your tag.

Tire Maintenance for Scissor Lifts

Scissor lift tires are very durable and take a long time to need replacing; however, if you do hit a curb or anything like that, then they might need replacing sooner.

Overall, the maintenance for a scissor lift is very straightforward and simple to handle. If you have any questions on how to maintain your new or reconditioned scissor lift, contact us at Above All Equipment Sales today!

No matter what industry you are in, if you need a telehandler, a boom lift, or a scissor lift, Above All Equipment is the place you need to go. We sell new and reconditioned equipment so that you can have the machine you need without having to rent all the time.

The Cons of Renting Telehandlers and Lifts

There are cases when renting your telehandler, boom lift, or scissor lift makes sense. If you only need the machine just that one time, renting is probably the way to go. However, if you are renting more than once a year, you should consider buying that piece of equipment.

Renting the same machine over and over again can get pricey because you have to pay not only for the rental but also for the delivery fee and pickup fee. On top of that, the time and hassle of those logistics is unnecessarily time-consuming.

Another issue with renting is that the rental agencies may not always have what you need. If they do have the machine you are looking for, but it is in high demand, you’re going to pay way too much to rent it.

Stop Renting and Own That Telehandler or Lift

At Above All Equipment, we specialize in selling new and reconditioned machines to our customers all over the country so they can have access to the machines they need.

But Buying Is Too Expensive

Our reconditioned telehandlers and scissor lifts are a fraction of the price of a new machine but works just a well. And it is cheaper to buy a reconditioned lift than to keep renting the same one.

If you are tired of wasting money and time on renting your telehandlers and lifts, contact us at Above All Equipment today. You can browse our website to see what we have in stock and learn more about the machinery you need.

At Above All Equipment Sales, we sell both new and reconditioned scissor lifts across many different brands, including Genie Scissor Lifts and Skyjack Scissor Lifts. Though we specialize in indoor lifts, we do carry an inventory of outdoor or rough terrain scissor lifts as well.

Whether you need a scissor lift for HVAC, electrical, painting, construction, or anything else, Above All is here to help you find the right equipment for your job. It is important to keep in mind your work environment when choosing your scissor lift.

Wide Vs. Narrow Scissor Lifts from Above All Equipment

A wide scissor lift is typically 46 inches wide, meaning it will not fit through your standard doorway. If you’re going to use a wide scissor lift, you will have to make sure you have a double door or larger entryway so the lift can fit through.

A narrow scissor lift is typically 32 inches wide, so they will fit through your standard doorway.

Scissor Lift Brands

Our most common scissor lifts at Above All are from Skyjack and Genie.

Genie Scissor Lift is the Genie GS-2632 or the Genie GS-2646, which are both great for maneuvering in tight spaces and can be used either indoor or outdoor.

Skyjack SJIII2646 and the Skyjack SJIII3226 are other popular scissor lifts.
